- The heart of Saint John Catholic School is Christian Community.
- Our primary focus is the children under our care.
- Our commitment is to provide a safe, secure and caring environment where faith formation, gospel values and a strong academic foundation can flourish.
- In such an environment, we strive to guide each child to grow and develop to full potential.
- Daily prayer, service to others, self-discipline, a sense of social justice, personal responsibility and conflict resolution skills are vital components of our entire school program.
- Our school community recognizes and embraces the cultural, social, economic and religious differences that exist in our school and in the world.
- We strive to instill in each child an inherent self worth and respect for all people.
- The faculty and staff of Saint John Catholic School recognize the uniqueness of each child, acknowledging that children learn in different ways and at a different pace.
- Therefore, our curriculum includes a variety of learning levels and techniques, teaching basic skills as well as critical thinking and problem solving.
- We accept and support the needs of individual students and strive to meet these needs whenever possible.
- Our goal is to encourage every student to do their best to develop their God-given abilities in caring, supportive and non-competitive environment.
